oneness

I think oneness is a beautiful thing.

oneness

 

 

This is an-going theme; I am drawn to this word and concept:

The human desire to belong, to be part of, to be in,

not only physically but also the inner desire for mutual understanding, the total relaxation which is found in friendship and marriage..

The elements which constitute oneness and unity, but also what disturbs & breaks it.

How it manifests itself.

Few descriptions from The Free Dictionary which I like -

  • the state of being one, united, in agreement
  • wholeness
  • a state or condition of perfect harmony or accord
  • unison; agreement: oneness of mind
  • unity of thought, feeling, aim, etc.; harmony; concord.

I have been felting again for some time now but am behind with taking photos. I hope to catch up on this front soon.

And when I go back to felt I go back to the wool as it is. I like to work with whites and grey so so very much!

Here is FOG, an infinity scarf made of finest merino, silk and alpaca. It’s now available and can be made in other sizes and also as an open scarf.

When I exhaust all colours which natural fleeces provide I hope to start adding colour to these.

In Post/review

September 1, 2014

I have just tried and tested a new to me delivery service – In Post. I needed to send a heavy parcel within UK, it would cost £ 13 via Royal Mail. Back from the post office I came, off to an  Interparcel website. And there I found what must have been the cheapest courier service in the world!

In Post is a ‘drop off’ service which meant that I had to print all the documents at home and drop the parcel off at a location stated on the website.

I was a little worried it wouldn’t work… I have never heard of it nor have I found reviews on-line…

To my delight I found what looked like a huge porto cabin not far away from our home. Upon scanning a barcode on one of the labels door automatically opened, I put the parcel in, shut the door and then could choose to have a confirmation slip sent to my e-mail address or have it printed on the spot.

And all of this for just under £ 2! The parcel was delivered in 7 calendar days. At the time the tracking service on Interparcel site didn’t work but via chat I got to speak to a help desk and was promised they would contact In Post on my behalf. Within few days I got a screen shot of the delivery notice with recipient signature straight to my e-mail box.

I thought I would mention the service here, not just for you, my readers but for anyone searching for reviews on In Post: it does exactly what it says, highly recommend!
